Seen above is Braniff Airways Convair 340 N3419 on the
ramp at Love Field, Dallas, Texas.
Although United Airlines were the launch customer for the
Convair 340, Braniff were actually the

With the advent of the CV340, Braniff embarked on a brand

were to be
repainted. This shot is from the Jennifer Gradidge
